    • Be a moderator! & Reports Announcement   03/07/19

      We're aware that PULL needs more moderation and attention, so we're actively looking to expand our mod crew! If you're a regular user and intend to stay this way, then rest assured that we're working on improving PULL for you. In order to do this, we rely on user reports, so I'd like to take this opportunity to ask everyone to report posts you think break a rule, disrupt discussion or shouldn't be allowed.  There is absolutely no concern over getting too many reports - we get a handful of reports per week. More reports would be great because it helps us figure out how our users want the forum to be - leaving criticism in threads doesn't make it easy for mods to find your opinions. Furthermore, don't worry about being a "snitch" or too harsh - a report doesn't mean action will be taken, that's up to the mods. A report really only tells us to look at the comment and to gauge the community atmosphere. Often times, peer pressure or established community atmosphere will dictate the direction a thread takes, and criticizing certain posts can be uncomfortable or downright futile when the majority disagrees with your view. This leads to groupthink and degradation of thread quality because the loudest/most active users get their way. So reporting is a way to quickly and anonymously (to other users) give feedback to the moderators. If we don't get this feedback, we think everyone's happy and there's no need for change. So use this feature as much as you'd like to help shape PULL into a more constructive community again. If you'd like to be a moderator: Click here for the application form.

    As much as I dislike Sharla, I feel bad for her in this situation. Being together for 7 years and then breaking up, especially when they are in their 30s, is very difficult, and starting over after that even more so.

    If she tried, then she would have gotten some nice pieces even from those fast fashion chains - yes, there are some well-made clothes(at least in Zara) but you need to actually look for them, not grab what's most trendy or on sale. Even online outlets have clothes from good materials that last for years, Taylor just doesn't care enough - probably because she can just easily buy new stuff on a whim.

    She specifically wrote "lonely" , not "alone". You can feel lonely even when you're not alone.

    Kisshuku Gakkou no Juliet is a rare for these days non-harem non-shoujo romance anime and it should have been executed better

    In her latest vlog about photoshoot she was so mean to the crew. She was acting all snobby and better-than-thou with the makeup lady and the outfit lady, telling them what to do, how to do her makeup, which clothes will look better. The only plausible reason for her acting like that would be that she hired them to do a photoshoot for her - but then it's not exactly a "modelling job" like what she tries to pass it off as.

    I'm afraid it will be the same as with her previous signature horrible eye makeup with circle lenses - she'll only stop after finding a new trend to jump on or after she gets an infection that will prevent her from using it.
    Unfortunately, those ugly matte lipsticks are still THE lip trend on the Internet, and it doesn't seem to go away anytime soon

    I tried it, didn't like it and won't do it again. For hair, the result was the same smoothing effect as other oils that I tried(except for coconut oil which dried my hair). Nothing exceptional. On the scalp it caused a slight reddening and itching and several bumps appeared on the hairline after the third use, so I stopped using it on the scalp.
    Plus, the smell wasn't great - I much prefer less smelly oils like almond or grape seed.

    The nose job video passed 300k views. Now I wonder if that's why she finally decided to do it in the first place, in hopes that it would become another viral video. And maybe fearing the backlash after getting more popular - her pregnancy transformation video has really put her out there with 24 million views.

    This girl came up in my recommendations with New Years GRWM. The only good thing is that at least it's not drag queen makeup. But she really seems like a closet Koreaboo - pretending to not be too excited about South Korea but failing.
    It's just like Japan starting with 2012, after Dakota Rose became a model there and everyone decided they can too. It has been dieing down slowly, maybe because they changed their destination to South Korea now

     She should follow her therapist's advice and stay off the Internet, at least when it comes to personal matters. Mental health is very difficult to treat, so better be safe than sorry. Her dwindling fame is not worth it, and she probably had to face the reality of it too -  clickbait wasn't helping and she wasn't willing/able to actually improve her content.
    So hopping on the new trend of virtual youtubers was actually a smart idea - this trend hasn't reached it's peak yet, it hasn't been overly infested by other content creators, so it's doesn't need as much effort and skill as, for example, shooting good makeup tutorials, because there aren't as many videos to choose from. And most importantly (for Venus, at least), the anonimity of it.
    It's impossible to show one's real personality without showing one's real thoughts and actions. Those might not be private life affairs you're referring to but that's definitely "entangling" oneself.  And what if her actual personality is far from pleasant - her certain actions have showed her in a very bad light, like when she publicly shamed Manaki for not being happy about her lying to him for 2 years about her surgery and only finding out in the hospital; or when she again publicly shamed Manaki for telling her that mega-weaboo and Lolita-head-to-toe are not for everyday every place. Those were very Margo-like tactics of manipulation through social media shaming.  And mental health problems are not an excuse for being a jerk. Nobody is lovely all the time, but after acting stupidly or evil or some other way, it's much better for the mental health to not do that publicly on the Inernet for the whole world to see and suffer exaggerated consequences than one would have if only one's closest people knew about it. I don't believe that Venus is completely horrible or anything but that is a good example of why she shouldn't overshare when she has problems and why staying off the internet is a good option to deal with problems.

    She just admitted to her nose job 
     
    In the video title she wrote "at 16" but in the video she says she was "almost 16", so she got her nose done at 15!  And she also conveniently forgot that she was deleting all comments about it, she just said that the nose job was so long ago that she forgot to bring it up, ugh 
    Overall, the video just showcased how insincere and fake Valeria actually is. She wants to pretty first and foremost, all the self love inspirational things are only possible after that; all her motivational bullsh*t means nothing to her personally, it's only use for her is to share enlightenment on the less pretty peasants to make herself look like a good person.
    The video on this topic could have been done so much better and could have made her look so much better after all the continuous sponsored videos she's done(last half year - every video is sponsored!). But, unfortunately...

    Oh, I get it - like when youtubers do "Answering hate comments". It could be interesting if she used a certain sense of humour(not salTay kind of "humour") but I feel like Taylor would just avoid the topics she always avoids - her plastic surgery, Tom's business and everything related to it, Tom's inluence on her modelling career, Tom basically financing her life, etc  - and that's probably the ones that actually bother her the most.

    You mean, like what she did 2 years ago ("Shopping on my Dad's credit carda again") and last year ("CLICKBAIT") - she had the balls, it wasn't funny, better if she doesn't do it again.

    Me too. Especially because even Loreal and many cheaper brands had similar mascara with fibers already back in 2011-2012  if not earlier, so no way she never heard of this stuff since she was working as a model back then.

    But her views have declined majorly - she struggles to reach 500k in general, and many videos are even below 100k, and it's been like this for several years(even while she was still with Margo and they came up with those horrible food challenges and controversial titles to keep relevant). Compared to the amount of her subs (1mil+) and her low views, it looks exactly like the channels who buy followers and it doesn't help them with views. I'm not saying that Venus is buying followers but just that the example of gaining followers without gaining views doesn't make a channel "non-dying".
    I do hope that if she decides to stay on youtube, she would improve her content instead for relying on clickbait. While beauty and makeup is not her strong point, she could do well with simply vlogging.
